When I added my custom water bottle holder to my Brompton bicycle, the straps took up the space I’d used for my GPS, which formerly rested on the lower part of Basil’s M handlebar.
A lot of diligent searching turned up the accessory bar that my Garmin is attached to in the photo above. I found it buried on a rack in a small plastic bag at a brick-and-mortar bike shop, without much in the way of distinctive labelling.
This little device is as simple as it can be: just a tube that connects with a loop to the handlebars; the “clock face” you see above is the connector for the Garmin. It’s a Profile Design New Universal Computer Mount (model ACUCMXL1, according to the package).
This compact bar installs without tools and stays in place flawlessly. For my small Garmin, it was a perfect fix.
Do beware that there are two sizes: I think it likely that mine is the XL (60mm); a Brompton’s bars are relatively thick. In a burst of unusual efficiency, I tossed the wrapper before double-checking. (The “XL” in the model code above may be a clue.)
This is what I see when riding — a pretty sleek cockpit! If anything, my GPS is even a little more accessible than it was. At around $10 (USD), I am very pleased with this device.
It may be hard to find: The link above is to Amazon because I couldn’t locate it on the Profile Design website, which lacks a useful search function. Poking around at every random LBS you are near could pay off, though — it always does for me!
